The very BEST King Cake?

I second Randazzo's Good Childrens'. AWESOME king-cake.

good food near city park

Voodoo is not going to be in Marconi Meadows, so forget the Harrison Ave locale. Anything on Esplanade will be a good bet, but also consider locations along the streetcar route, a good mode of transportation to the concert site. Near Canal Street we have Juan's Flying Burrito, Venizia (Italian), Doson's Noodle House (Asian), Little Tokyo (sushi and hibachi), two Mexican joints whose names escape me at the moment, and for dessert, the irrepressible Brocato's (ice cream, gelato, ices, cannoli).

Romantic Italian Restaurant plus some great hole in the wall bars and restaurants

Absolutely Irene's. And see if you can get Chris as your waiter. He's excellent.

Carbonara, anyone?

I can't do Andrea's. Had a bad experience there one Mother's Day a few years ago and I've not been back since.

But I am willing to experiment with cooking my own. My fear is not that I can't handle it, but more that I'll bust my gut eating ALL of it. :D

Carbonara, anyone?

No kidding? I've been there once and had the tasting. Good stuff. Thanks.

Carbonara, anyone?

I've searched high and low for a restaurant with pasta carbonara in New Orleans, and it seem to be fruitless.

Suggestions on where to find it nowadays?
